The Arts Learning Area
Study of The Arts at Grace Christian School relates to the areas of Dance, Drama, Media, Music and Visual Arts.
Because God is Creator and humans are made in His image, we are creative people, capable of appreciating and using a wide range of creative expressions and thus arts have intrinsic meaning. God has gifted us with various skills, gifts, insights and abilities, including those we call creative.
As we approach the task of educating young people today to be effective in their community, we have to balance accountability with the need to feel free in experimentation, to be radical and to be free to fail without the burden of condemnation. Students need to see the significance of The Arts in their role of community-shaping, and consider the implications of this individually, in classes, and in the context of the whole school community.
